PS3 gets better and better every time you lend a hand, a voice or an idea.

The essence and uniqueness of PS3 is part of a legacy that can only be continued with your help. Each year, thousands of volunteer hours supplement the incredibly hard-working school staff. Whether it’s helping out in the classroom, organizing an event, watering the plants over school break, or spearheading a school-wide project, every contribution goes a long way towards maintaining this special community and helping it to thrive. 

Volunteering is a great way to get closer to your child and their education. Not only are you getting to know other parents, you are building ties to the community. When you volunteer you become part of a team. The children, staff and families of PS3 cannot thank you enough for your help!
